Everett Peck (born October 9, 1950) is an American illustrator, cartoonist and animator.[1] He is best known as the creator of Duckman and Squirrel Boy.[2]

Career[edit]

Peck's drawings have appeared in The New Yorker, Playboy, and Time, as well as numerous books, comics and movie posters. He has participated in gallery shows in Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C., and has written animated cartoons for Rugrats, The Critic, and a series based on one of his own cartoon characters: Duckman.[3]

Originally created as a comic book that was first published by Dark Horse in 1990, in 1994 Duckman was turned into an animated series for the USA Network. During its four year run, it won the CableACE Award, and was nominated for four Emmys.

Peck also created the Cartoon Network series Squirrel Boy, which ran from 2006 to 2007, although it was not as critically acclaimed as Duckman.[4]

Additional work includes character design for the animated TV series Jumanji, a slew of print ads for Nike and Honda, and several station IDs for UPN.

Samples of Peck's personal sketches appear in the book It's Not My Fault [ISBN 1-59617-461-7], a companion piece to his 2011 solo exhibition at the Oceanside Museum of Art.

He currently resides at San Diego, California.
